2022 Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest

The Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest was established on December 22, 2014 by Rossiya Segodnya under the patronage of the Russian Federation’s Commission for UNESCO. The Stenin Contest is the only competition in Russia that discovers new names in international photojournalism and develops quality standards for documentary photography. The contest is aimed at supporting young photo journalists aged 18 to 33 in their striving for top professionalism.

The contest was launched in memory of Rossiya Segodnya photojournalist Andrei Stenin, who died while on assignment in August 2014.

The contest offers young photo journalists an opportunity to make their concerns known. The main themes of the contest include global humanitarian challenges, national identity, social equality and the environment. The number of contest participants and the countries they come from has been growing every year.

In 2021 around 4,500 entries from 70 countries were submitted.
